Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Having trouble... the flash does not work sometimes, but other times it does. Sometimes it won't work for months, and then it does. Today I tried taking pictures and all I heard was a clicking noise where the flash is. What could be the problem, and is there a resolution?

    I have canon power shot 530. Sometimes flash works fine but sometimes it doesn't. Even for new batterly it shows batterly low signal and i can't take snaps with flash. though without flash i can click many photos without replacing batterly.

    Second problem is, its diafram doesn't open completely. i need to manully make it open.

    I have the exact same issue with this camera.

    The flash light just blinks and it never takes the picture. Some times when I turn it off then on it works, and some times it doesn't. Any suggestions, am I doing something wrong?

This sounds like to short or a capacitor failure. The likely cost of repair if at all possible will not a economicx. Best to write it off.

I have had a problem like this in the past you can try taking the electric access panel usually on the side of the equipment. then look inside you will see a wiring harness inside and it literally takes nothing to bump it loose. This happens when people move these units they are pretty fragile and can be tempermental. Make sure the unit is unplugged while you adjust the wiring harness. If that deosnt work your display board is probably bad. Hope that helps

I'm having the same issue now. Did you ever figure out what was wrong with your unit? Was it a bad lamp? Mine is only 9 months old, low hours, but perhaps a bad one? Can't understand why it would light sometimes but not others.

Flashes orange 2 times every 5 seconds


There is a 20 pin cable that goes from the main board to the light engine that can cause this issue. The other possibility is the door switch or the cable that leads to it has failed. If none of those correct it then the light engine itself is the problem. Hopefully one of the earlier mentioned items is the issue as the light engine is costly. The part number for the cable is LSJA0467 and is available here http://www.partstore.com/PartNumberSearchResults.aspx?PartNumber=LSJA0467
